Kylian Mbappe will open a new transfer era
Even though there are verbal agreements with Paris Saint-Germain, people still believe in the prospect that the French international will join Real Madrid this summer on a free transfer. Remember that Neymar created a shock when he moved to PSG in 2017 for a fee of 222 million euros. This opened a new era in the football market when players were ‘overpriced’.
Even though Antony, Darwin Nunez or Mykhailo Mudryk have not yet proven much, they are still worth hundreds of millions of euros. This is the consequence of the PSG – Neymar deal and Kylian Mbappe may be the pioneer in the new trend.
Refusing to extend the final year of the contract allows players to be proactive in choosing to leave, stay or even join their favorite stops. This is very beneficial for the players as well as the intermediaries because not having to spend money to recruit can help that team save a fee, which they will use to pay for bribery fees as well as promotion fees. An attractive salary for players.
FIFA is very strict in protecting player rights, so they will not feel worried if the club tries to ‘exile’ if they do not accept to sign a new contract. As in the case of Mbappe, PSG also has no choice but to wait for the French striker to choose to stay at the last minute or not.
The escape in Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp’s departure at the end of the season could lead to an exodus at Anfield such as Mohamed Salah, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez or Trent Alexander-Arnold. Ben Jacobs – talkSPORT reporter spoke about the case of the Egyptian striker, he said: “I think it is likely that he [Salah] will leave after Jurgen resigns.
Salah is at a crossroads, Liverpool is at a crossroads, so if Klopp stays, I guess he does [Salah] will go to Saudi Arabia in 2025 and he could continue playing for another season for Liverpool. Al-Ittihad likes Salah because they are Saudi champions and they are competing in the Club World Cup, so they would want him to be a promoter.”
Salah chose to stay at Liverpool because Jurgen Klopp still exists. The German coach’s resignation will cause the Egyptian star to leave a year earlier than the original deadline. Besides, stars like Joel Matip or Joe Gomez are also closely watched by a number of teams in the Saudi Pro League. Meanwhile, Real Madrid may recruit Trent Alexander-Arnold as they have been following this defender for a long time.
